Rob Ford issues “vague” policy response

Toronto mayoral frontrunner slips up yet again

Toronto resident Cathie Besso emailed Rob Ford, frontrunner in the upcoming Toronto mayoral election, to ask him what he intended to do about bike lanes in the city. She was taken aback by the reply: a form letter first thanked her for voicing her concerns, the Toronto Star reports. In the second paragraph, written in bold, it said “Insert vague response on policy.” Presumably an error, there was no answer to her question, and Ford’s team didn’t return the Star’s requests for comment.
